For students who wish to pursue musical development in composition skills, a solid grounding in harmony and counterpoint is a valuable foundation before commencing formal studies in free composition.
Third level students who are stuck in this area may apply for a grind.
Ideally students intending to learn this course should have previously passed grade five theory (or equivalent). You may see our page about training in the theory of music here.
